    Wish I knew how to forward this to friends – it’s a keeper

  • Eagle says:

    Put your cursor just to the left of the word “Merger.” Left click and pull down until the entire post is included in the shaded area (through “BangBang.”) Now hold down the control key and the letter “C” key at the same time and left click. This action will copy everything.

    Now open your email program and open a new blank email. Put the cursor in the message part of the layout at the bottom. Now hit both the control key and the letter “V” key at the same time. The post should transfer. Now it’s ready to be sent to whomever you wish.

    Eagle, I never had to copy and paste since I always just forwarded what I needed…I followed your directions, and only got to the part of the empty email and all I got were a succession of “VVVVV”

    Obviously my expertise needs work…I have a MacBook…I rarely need copy and paste, but there were times that I could have used it…now I will try and print your instructions (before I write them down) and print the entire BergersBeat…yes there are some things I need training, as my wife and I bought our units together, (2008) and had minimal instruction, and I just figured it out by the Columbus method…discover it and then land on it. Much like Leif Ericson when he discovered Vinland. Now who remembers that ?

  • Eagle says:


    Here’s the sentence you overlooked in the copying help I was furnishing m: “Now hit both the control key and the letter “V” key at the same time.” Unless you depress the control key as well as the V key at the same time, all you’ll get is the letter V. Hopefully m had better luck.

    ^^^I will try until I reach success. I am so used to “drag and drop” that C&P never was needed.

    Thank you for your expertise.

    Let’s celebrate this moment of partnership and harmony between TC and Eagle. Three cheers!!!! “We can build on this.”

  • Eagle says:

    I use a PC, not a Mac, so I’m not sure my roadmap fits your MacBook.

  • TOWNCAR says:

    ^^^Actually I have no beef with Eagle except politically. We are polar opposites in the political arena.

    Eagle could be the model for Paul Brown, the resident encyclopedia of the Post-Disgrace.
